Owners Dan and Angie Mott and Tammy and Kevin Underwood invite you to explore the fun, festive options at Party Depot.
What do these things have in common – a tiki hut, Mickey Mouse, Harley Davidson and wedding stationery? Give up? These are just a few of the fun items you will find at Party Depot in Owasso. Located in Tyann Plaza just east of Highway 169 between 86th and 96th Streets North, this store boasts everything you could possibly need to put on the most talked about party of the year! Filled with balloons, napkins, piñatas and more, Party Depot has seen a resurgence in customers since new owners Angie and Dan Mott and Tammy and Kevin Underwood bought the store in June, 2009.
Both couples are local to Owasso, with Angie and Dan residing in Owasso and Kevin and Tammy living just up the road in Oologah. After purchasing the business, Tammy states that they have never regretted their decision. “This has been so much fun!” she says. “I have to say that the best part is our customers. We love meeting them, finding out what their needs are and meeting those needs.”
Most customers comment on how excited they are to have a party store locally. “We are completely committed to Owasso and to serving the local community,” says Tammy. “We try to have everything our customers are looking for. And, if we don’t have it, we can special order it. We go above and beyond when it comes to taking care of our customers’ needs. That is very important to us!”
If you have not shopped in Party Depot before, or if it has been awhile, it is time to stop in. The store is fully stocked with so many fun items, you won’t be able to see it all in one visit. You will find a huge selection of piñatas from Elmo to puppy dogs, along with an impressive assortment of mylar balloons that circle the walls of the shop with everything from birthday greetings to welcoming a new baby, graduation greetings and even a Mexican sombrero. Choosing which one you want will be the toughest part! Party Depot has an equally impressive selection of latex balloon color choices guaranteed to match even the most outlandish color scheme.
But don’t be fooled. Party D epot is so much more than just balloons and paper products. They have an exciting selection of rental items that will add to the success of any event. They offer karaoke machines, a tiki hut, margarita machines, chocolate fondue makers, and fog machines to their clients at extremely reasonable rates. And, if you need tables or chairs, they can handle that too.
“We are excited to debut some new items too,” Tammy states. “We have Harley Davidson party items, as well as Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Transformers, and one of our most popular, John Deere party supplies.” The experts at Party Depot can even help you with specialized stationery needs. They can help you order wedding invitations, personalize match books and handle engraving.
Another big plus at Party Depot is that they stock all the colors and items for area school graduations. You don’t have to be an Owasso Ram fan. They carry items for Collinsville, Oologah, Skiatook, Claremore, Sperry and many more. No need to drive all over Tulsa to pull off the perfect graduation gathering. One stop at Party Depot and you are ready to send your graduate off in style. They even offer items for OU, OSU, University of Kansas, and Arkansas.
Party Depot is a business that understands how important it is to give back to their community. Not only are the owners active participants in the local boy scout programs, they allow the Ram Gear Store to sell Owasso Ram clothing items there year-round. And, all proceeds go to the Owasso Rams athletic department.
The next time you decide to host a party of any kind, do yourself a favor and make your first stop Party Depot. You will save time and get the chance to meet some of the nicest people Owasso has to offer.
